The Roseville Fire Department and the American Red Cross invite you to help those in need by donating a pint of blood at Cedarholm Community Building, Hamline Ave., on Friday, April 17 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
In response to COVID-19 (coronavirus), blood donations have dropped and drives have been postponed so that the Red Cross would have time to establish protocols to ensure the safety of blood donors and staff.
The Red Cross is now adding blood drives in the community, to make it easier for people to donate. Please register to donate at www.redcrossblood.org and enter the word Roseville. Additional dates may be added, so check back often.
Donating blood is safe. The Red Cross follows strict health guidelines. Every donor has their temperature, blood pressure, pulse and hemoglobin checked before donating. The Red Cross follows cleaning protocols and uses new, sterile needles that are discarded after one use.
Cedarholm Community Building is located at 2323 Hamline Ave. in Roseville
